New York Elementary

Summary:

New York Elementary is a public elementary school in Lawrence, Kansas, serving 416 students from pre-kindergarten to 5th grade. The school stands out for its diverse student population, with a higher percentage of students of color compared to nearby schools, but faces academic performance challenges, with proficiency rates below the district and state averages.

New York Elementary's racial makeup is more diverse than the surrounding schools, with 57.69% White, 7.93% African American, 14.18% Hispanic, and 14.42% two or more races. However, the school's academic performance, as measured by state assessments, is generally lower than the Quail Run Elementary and the Lawrence district averages. The school's ranking has fluctuated over the years, ranging from 315 out of 660 Kansas elementary schools to as high as 24 out of 660, suggesting challenges in maintaining consistent academic performance.

New York Elementary faces additional challenges, including a high percentage of students from low-socioeconomic backgrounds (56.73% qualify for free or reduced-price lunch) and a changing demographic landscape, with the percentage of White students decreasing over the past few years. The school may need to explore targeted interventions and support to address the academic needs of its diverse student population, particularly in English Language Arts and Mathematics, and to support the achievement of specific subgroups, such as female students.

As you review the school rankings data, please be aware that some of the information from certain demographics is missing. The reason for this omission is that the data has been redacted from the source data itself due to low population samples in these specific demographic groups.

Redacting data from low population samples is a necessary step to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the results, as small sample sizes may not be representative of the broader population. Additionally, this measure helps protect the privacy of individuals belonging to these demographic groups.

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
